I am currently getting help with my laptop, and thought I should go ahead and run through the steps with my desktop as well. My computer's CPU is being eaten up with processes. Svchost.exe is the main culprit right now (as I type this, it is using 25% cpu). The search indexer processes also seem way too active. Between the three processes, they eat up 5-15 % at all times. I suspect I have things running that I do not know about. The machine crashes about once per day, for no obvious reason that I can tell. I have attached the logs to this post. I could not run gmer with device checked. It would cause a bsod. Thanks again for this forum and all who help with it!
